HC issues summons on Hirunika

The Colombo High Court yesterday issued summons on former UNP Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra to appear before the Court on July 10 over her alleged involvement in the abduction of a youth using a Defender jeep.

When the case was taken up before Colombo High Court Judge Champa Janaki Rajaratne, former UNP Parliamentarian Premechanda and her counsels failed to appear before the court.

Accordingly, the High Court Judge ordered to issue summons on them to appear before the Court on July 10 and the case will be taken up again on the same day.
